    Read the description carefully. It states the speaker range is 50′ not the microphone. My dog stood 10′ away from it and even with the sensitivity on high and her barking right at the thing it wouldn’t trigger. Matter of fact I never could get it to trigger with barking. The only time it did go off was when I put the batteries in for the first time and my husband was mowing the lawn on his big riding mower and he knocked into a chicken wire fence which made me run out to get it with the unit in my hand. Even then it didn’t go off till I was about 4 feet from the mower.

    I also couldn’t get it to just make the ultrasonic sound. Even when switched from audible to ultrasonic you still hear a noise. Not just me but my husband too so it’s not a case of super human hearing on my part 🙂

    Yes the timer option is very nice. This was actually why I purchased this one over the others as we only wanted to stop the night barking. But what good is the timer function if the microphone can’t pick up the barking?

    So read these descriptions carefully when looking at these control units. Unless your dog always barks in the same spot and you can place this unit under 4 feet from them then pick something else.

    The item didn’t work at all. As a matter of fact. My dog didn’t even flinch when I tested it right next to her head. No, she’s not deaf either. We yell for her to stop barking from across the house and she hears that fine.

    The item actually melted in the sun (it still worked though). I was going to return it but it said it had to be in good condition and it was all warped from the sun – oh well – lesson learned.

    I’m not trying to sound bitter but don’t waste your money on this item. I’m gonna try the shock collar next. Maybe I’ll have better luck.

    Thanks anyways,

    Mike

    I bought two of these. One works just fine but the other failed. To my surprise the unit has no warranty. If the manufacturer has no faith in their product, why should I? The seller refunded my money but that was because it failed within the 30 day return period.
